Have you considered speaking to Memorial Hospital for the scholarship? The only rn graduates they hire is those that they give scholarships to. I know the hospital is far from you, but this is the way I see it - I have applied to Baptist; which is really far from me as I live in North Miami Beach, but if I get a job, I will only have to travel that far three times a week and the occasional on call. It is doable.
I am looking for a job, and I am willing to travel 55 miles or so each way, so long I get a job; which is hard. I have been looking since August. When you get at my point in the journey, you will make concessions and accept an offer from an institution that is not your first pick.
If money for tuition is an issue, Leon Medical has donated millions to the nursing program, try to see if you get a scholarship through the school.
